No. 27 & No. 28...Finished...But Wait!


Well here I am at the final two quilts. No. 27 is "Ivy".


No. 28 is "The Sheep".
However, I have been called and it seems there are seven more rooms that were supposed to have prints in them, but now they want quilts. So I have seven more to do for a total of 35.
They understand that I will need more time to do these since not only do I have obligations already scheduled, I have a major Holiday to prepare for.
So my deadline for the next seven is Jan. 30th.

I am going to try my best to get them done sooner, but could not guarantee that.
I need to catch up on so many things first and just need a bit of a break. I was not prepared
to be asked to do more so that was a bit of a shock.

The good news......Bob and I have planned a vacation on Jan. 30th for 10 days. So I have that to look forward to as time to relax.

Monday I am taking the finished quilts down to Illinois to the hospital to have them hung and ready for the grand opening on December 15th.

Congratulations on meeting the deadline. That was an awful lot of work. Which hospital in IL? I hope your ideas will flow for the next 7. I really like "the sheep".

Oh, so close to seeing the light at the end of this project! Then BAM! Whew!

I'm looking forward to seeing these along with my "Prairie Performance" installation piece hung.

I think that is definitely confirmation that they liked your pieces and preferred them over prints (like, duh!).

Libby Fife said...

Those last two pieces are lovely. I just love the "everydayness" of your scenes.

Let's hear it for the vacation! Yah!

Kay said...

Congratulations, even if it turns out you're not quite finished. As Debra says, that is a compliment to your work.

I can just imagine how beautiful and comforting the hospital is going to look with your wonderful quilts gracing the walls.

I cannot tell you all how much your support has meant to me as I have worked my way through this commission. I have not had much time to post but will try to add a bit here and there.

What an experience this is.

ANd then I scroll down and find the love of my life, the wonky quilt! I love how you can be so crisp and exact and then so un-exact. How did you learn to do this style of quilting?
